not understand.

viitue is its sun, and the two are never far

A cistern 10 feet in diameter, 9 feet deep,

feet, \b% barrels; 10 feet, 18% barrels. 

The tricky, deceitful and dishonest are 
rarefy prosperous ; for when confidence is 
withdiawn, poverty is likely to follow. 

He who sedulously attends, pointedly asks,

when he has no more to say, i- in possession 
of some of the best requ sit s of man.

Leave nothing that is necessary in any 
matter undone— we rate ability in men by 
what they finish, not by what they attempt. 



Tntem: erance is the parent of most other 
victs It. quenches 'he salutary powsr of reas- 
on, and makes us the sport of raging pass^O". 
- As the soil, however rich it may be, can- 
not be productive without culture, so the 
mind, without cultivation, can never pro- 
duce gotra fruit. 

Su cess rids on every hour ; grappa it, 
ami you may win, but without a grapple, it 
will never go with you. Work is Ihe weapon 
of horor, atid he who lacks the weapon will 
never triumph.

One-half pint of whisky, one-half p"nt of

one-half pint soft soap will cure the worst 
case of bot&. 



It cannot be too strongly impressed upon 
the raind that application is the price to be 
paid for mental acquisitions, and that it is as 
absurd o expect them without it as it is to 
hope for a harvest where we may not have 
sown the seed. 

Men of the noblest disposition think them- 
selves happiest when others share their hap- 
piness with thera. 

If thy conscience smite thee once, it is an 
admonition ; if it smite thee twice, it is a 
condemnation.

inVEOCOsT'S PHASES. 

Full Moon, the 6th, at 3 o,clock 57 m. in 
the afternoon. 

Last Quarter, the 13th, at 10 o'clock 28 rn. 
in the morning. 

New Mo >n, the 21st, at 12 o'clock 38 m. in 
the afternoon. 

First Quarter, the 29th, at 9 o'clock 41 m. 
in the morning. 

He only is great "who has the habits of 
greatness ; who, after performing what none 
in a thousand could accomplish, passes on 
like Sampson, and u tells neither father nor 
mother of it." 



The best remedy for in-growing toe nails 
is to cut a notch about the shape of a V in 
the end of the nail, about- one-quarter the 
width of the nail distant from the in-growing 
side. Cut down as nearly to the quick as 
possible, and one-third the length of the 
nail. The pressure of the boot or shoe will 
tend to close the opening you have made in 
the nail, and thus soon afford relief. Allow 
the in-growing portion of the nail to grow 
without cutting it until it gets beyond the 
flesh. 

Whosoever is unchaste can not reverence 
himself.

L : ke a morning dream, life becomes more 
and more bright the longer we live, and the 
reason of everything becomes more clear. 
What has puzzled us before seems less mys- 
terious, and the cro ked paths look straight 
er as we approach the end. 

There is in some men a dispassionate neu- 
trality o^* mind, whi^h, though it generally 
passes for good temper, can neither graify 
nor warm us ; it must indeed be granted 
that these men can only negatively offend ; 
but then it should also be remembered that 
they cannot positively please.

In vain do they talk of happiness who 
never subdued an impulse in obedien^to a

to a future good, or a pergonal to a v general 
one, can speak of happiness only as the blind 
do of colors. 

Kind words aro the br"ght flowers of 
earth's existence ; use them, and especially 
around the fireside circle. Tliey are jewels 
beyond price, and powerful to heal the 
wounded heart and make the weighed-down 
spirit glad.

It is safer to affront some people than to 
oblige them ; for the better a man derservep, 
the worse they will speak of him ; as if the 
profession of open hatred to their benefac- 
tors were an argument that they lie under 
no obligation. 

The truly great and good in affliction bear

He that cannot forgive others breaks the 
bridge over which he must pass himself.

Biographical. 

[Written for the Almanac by special request. || 
MARTIN URNER, SR., 

The subject of this memoir was 
born in Alsace a province of France, 
about the year 1695, and bred in the 
Reformed, or Presbyterian faith. 

He came to America in 1115, and 
settled among the Hermits of the 
Ridge, now called Roxborougb, near 
the confluence of the Wissahicon and 
Schuykill rivers. He was for a while 
an as&ociate with the mystic sect, 
called the " Woman in the Wilder- 
ness" founded by the hermit John 
Kelpius, in 1694. But after the 
Brethren came over in Hi 9, he soon 
made his acquaintance with them, 
and not long until he was so far con- 
vinced of the duty and necessity of 
Christian baptism that he applied to 
them, as a candidate, with live oth- 
ers, which were the first-fruits of the 
Brethren in America. They were 
baptized by Peter Becker in the Wis- 
sahicon, on the 25th of December, 
H23. 

In H24, be, with several others, 
moved to Coventr}% in Chester coun- 
ty, Pa., and organized a little church 
there, under the oversight of Peter 
Becker, by whom he was commiss- 
ioned to serve the church as an ex- 
horter, until in H29, he was formally 
ordained by the Imposition of Hands, 
to the office of Bishop, in which ca- 
pacity he served the church until 
H55, when he was removed by death, 
in the sixty-first year of his age. — 
His remains are buried in the Breth- 
ren's grave yard at Coventry. 

He was married early in life, to a 
Catharine Reist, by whom he had 
three children, Mary, Martha, and 
Jacob. These married into the Wolf, 
Eddies, and Light, or Lichty fami- 
lies, wLo have left him a numerous 
progeny scattered through the dif 
ferent states of the Union, many of 
whom are still in connection with the 
Church of the Brethren. 

For further information concerning 
his Fidelity, &c, the reader is refer- 



red to the hints given in the Compan- 
ion of April 9th 1872, page 228. 

MARTIN URNER, JR., 

Was also a very popular preacher 
among the ancient worthies. He 
was a brother's son, or nephew to 
the preceding Martin Uruer Sr., and 
was born in New Hanover Township, 
then in Philadelphia county, but now 
Montgomery, Pa., in the year H25. 
He became a member of the church 
at Coventry while very young in life, 
and after serving her different offices 
with exemplary piety, and disinter- 
ested zeal, he was finally promoted 
to the office of Bishop, being ordain- 
ed in H56. From that time on the 
sole care of the church devolved upon 
him until released by death. He 
died in May H99 in the Hth year of 
his age. 

He was married to sister Barbara 
Sweitzer, of Coveutry, by whom he 
had four children, Mary, Joseph, 
Martin, and Elizabeth, who have al- 
so raised him a numerous progeny, 
many of whom are still in fellowship 
with the Brethren. 

This brother Urner appears to have 
been somewhat a revivalist, as the 
church flourished greatly under his 
ministerial labors. He was also the 
bosom friend of Alexander Mack as 
their correspondence manifests the 
most intimate terms of love and 
friendship between them during life, 
the record of his death also is in lan- 
guage that bespeaks great tenderness 
of affection for him. 

MICHAEL FRANTZ. 

Michael Frantz was another very 
eminent preacher among the ancient 
Brethren, and the first settled minis- 
ter of the old Conestoga church. He 
was born in the Canton of St. Jacob, 
near Basel, in Switzerland, in the 

year and came to America in 

Sept. H21, and settled in the vicinity 
of the Cocalico, in Lancaster county, 
Pa., where he soon became convinced 
of tjhe truth of the doctrines as they 
are held forth by the Brethren, con- 
sequently he was received into the 



16 



followship of the lt Little Flock, 11 
which had separated themselves from 
the Parent Church of Ephrata, on ac- 
count of the innovations that were 
being introduced by the mystic Con- 
rad Beissel. See Companion, Vol. 8 
page 228. 

He was baptized by Peter Becker 
on the 29th of September, 1*734, the 
same day that that little flock was 
organized into a separate church, and 
while it was otherwire unsupplied, 
this brother Frantz was commission- 
ed to serve them in the capacity of 
an exhorter, in which he approved 
himself so well that he was soon or- 
dained by the Imposition of Hands to 
be their Elder, and the next year 
(1*135) he took upon him the entire 
care of the church, which he served 
with exemplary zeal and fidelity un- 
til the day of his death, which occur- 
red in December, If 47, one record 
says 1748. His remains are buried 
in the old grave yard near the Cocal- 
ico. The following is an attempted 
translation of a little note or epitaph, 
by an unknown hand : "In this year 
1748, our Elder and Overseer, Michael 
Frantz departed this life, and has ex- 
changed time with eternity, after be- 
ing well tried by affliction." 

"Farewell on the chariot of Grod, 
We do not envy thee thy rest, 
By angels thou'rt carried the road, 

Toward the abode of the blest 
To join in that heavenly abode. 
The host of the angelic choir, 
To sing and rejoice in thy Grod, 

To praise him forever and higher." 
Brother Frantz appears to have 
been an approved workman of the 
Lord, insomuch that the little church 
which consisted of but 20 members 
when he commenced his labors in it, 
increased to about 200, during the 
thirteen years of his ministy. "Sure- 
ly this is the Lord's doing, and it is 
marvelous in our eyes." He was 
not only approved of as a good and 
efficient preacher, but was also a very 
ready writer, and a pretty good poet. 
He composed so many excellent pieces 
that brother Christopher Saur of Ger- 
mantown, was induced to publish a 



collection of his poetic and other pro- 
ductions, which he accomplished in 
1*770, under the tittle of *Sinfa(ttge

[For the Almanac. 
Church and Family Chronicles. 

I hardly know how to get up an inter- 
esting sketch of the first beginnings of 
the church in Buffalo Valley, Union Co., 
Pa. , without getting too much personal 
matter intermingled with it. To leave 
out all personal and family names and 
connections, would divest the narrative 
of nearly all local or general interest, and 
render the account, in a great measure, 
dull and foreign to those otherwise most 
likely to be entertained in its perusal. 
With this apology we begin these chron- 
icles. 

Our great-grandfather, Wendell Becker, 
now Baker, immigrated from Palz, Ger- 
many, in the year 1749, to America, and 
anterior to the revolutionary war, re- 
moved to Buflfolo Valley, from the 
church at Amwell, in New Jersey. His 
removal from the latter place was proba- 
bly hastened on account of the political 
troubles immediately preceding the break- 
ing out of the war of '76, which troubles, 
included the most rigorous persecutions 
of all non-combatant believers. He was, 
therefore, the first, and for a time, the 
only member of the Brethren in Buffalo 
Valley. The next member was the wife 
of Jacob Braefogel, who, it is said, was a 
native of Prussia- She died during the 
lifetime of Wendell Baker. Wendell was 
not supposed to have been a relative of 
the eminent preacher, Peter Becker. 
Grandfather John Baker, eldest son of 
Wendell, at the age of twenty years, went 
to Middle Creek Valley, now Snyder 
county, to learn the trade of a mill-wright, 
and from there, with his master, to York 
county, where he formed the acquaint* 

*3imple mediations, and condensed con- 
fessions of the faith, of the sainted teacher, 
Michael ¥rantz, late pastor of the Babtist 
congregation, at Conesto^a. 



n 



ance of a widow lady of the name of Hor- 
bacher, whose maiden name had been 
Mary Lawshe, a member of the church, 
to whom he was united in" marriage dur- 
ing the year 1793. The fruit of this 
marriage, on the Conawago, near East 
Berlin, was the birth of a daughter, on 
the 4th of April, 1794, whose name was 
called Anna. Grandmother Baker died 
in October, 1 804, and (during the year 
1807 grandfather Baker, with his second 
wife — Mary Hollinger — also a member, 
removed again to Buffalo Valley. This 
addition made the number of the members 
in the valley count four. 

Some time after this, John Eyer was 
baptized, probably by old Elder David 
Shellenberger or David Smith, which 
brethren began about this time to 
visit the brethren in Buffalo Valley. 
Their first meeting being held in October, 
1816, at the house of grandfather, John 
Baker, about two years bofore the death 
of Wendell Baker. 

After the events noted above, those 
Lost Creek Valley brethren continued to 
make occasional church and preaching 
visits to this valley. Probably during 
the year 1817, Esther Nickol and Mary 
Hupper were baptized in Buffalo Creek, 
on grandfather Baker's fam, the title 
of which is now vested in Samuel Ba- 
ker, a grand- on of old Wendell, a nephew 
of John Baker. It is situated near Buf- 
falo Cross Boads. 

The next person baptized was Polly 
Peters, probably in August, 1821, by a 
minister by the name of Stover, who was 
in company with brother Christian Long, 
Sr. She afterward became the wife of 
brother Abraham Slifer, and step-mother 
of Samuel and Eli Slifer, of Harrisburg, 
Pa. > Soon after this Michael Peters was 
baptized; after this John Keister and 
wife were added by baptism. 

Great-grandfather Valentine Bieber, 
now Beaver, immigrated from Zwei- 
bricken, Germany, to Philadelphia, thence 
to Virginia, and South Carolina. His 
son Adam, our grandfather, was ap- 
prenticed to a man in Bucks county, Pa., 
who brought him along to the Susque- 
hanna valley. He settled on Muncy 
Creek, and died in the town of Muncy, 
Pa., at the age of 88 years. His son, our 
earthly father, John Beaver, who was 
born July 3d, 17'89, was united in mar- 
riage with the aforementioned Anna, 
daughter of John Baker aforesaid, on the 
22d of January, 1814. Magdalena Metz, 
and Anna Beaver, our mother, were bap- 
tized in October, 1822, on the same day. 



This is the mother of all the Beaver's in 
the church in Buffalo Valley, or else- 
where, so tar as I know. She still lives. 
Pretty soon afterward, in the year 1823, 
came John Boyer with his family, him- 
self and wife members ; with whom came 
alpo Isaac Myers, now Elder of this con- 
gregation, and his sister Susannah, now 
deceased, wife of Jacob Boyer, Sr., but 
not then members. David Shallenber- 
ger, now Elder, and living near Dayton, 
Ohio, came into the valley about two 
years later. Brother David was the first 
preacher ever chosen in this church. 
Brother Abraham Slifer and sister, his 
wife, came on in the spring of 1 825. Joel 
Boyer and wife Susannah, both members, 
moved here with their large family in the 
spring of 1828. 

From this time forward, until within 
the last few years, the church gradually 
increased in membership, largely under 
the pastoral labors here of the late Elder 
John Sprogel of Illinois, until it reached 
about two hundred. Of late, however, 
this number has been somewhat reduced 
by western emigration, and the ministry 
becoming too old, and therefore too 
much isolated to effectually reach the 
younger, impressible, convertible classes, 
and the want or decline of social visiting 
from house to house, for the encourage- 
ment of timid seekers of religion, is also 
belieyed to be a cause contributing to this 
declension. 

Amongst the earliest ministers of the 
church, who was chosen, labored and 
died here, was John Boyer. And of 
those, not already mentioned, who labor- 
ed in this church longer or shorter peri- 
ods of time, are brother Bubsam, of 
Ohio, John Lawver, deceased, of Illi- 
nois, and Samuel Longenecker, of Iowa, 
John Bogemeif, deceased, and Bobert 
Badger, of Iowa ; these last two brethren 
were chosen to the ministry in this 
church. Of those chosen to the ministry 
elsewhere, after becoming members here, 
and moving out of the church, we recall 
the names of Allen Boyer, of Illinois, 
John G. Boyer, and John Beif, oflnd., 
and perhaps David Barkloo, of Iowa.

A Brief Biography 

OF THE BROTHERHOOD, TN WESTERN! PENN'a 
WESTERN MARYLAND, A -D WES- 
TERN VIRGINIA.. 

In the Spring of 1 183, brother 
John Keagey, then a young brother. 
a deacon, emigrated from York county, 
Pa., to what was then termed the 
Back- woods, Bedford, now Somerset 
county, Pa , into the valley between 
the Allegheny, and Negro Mountains, 
about thirteen miles south of the vil- 
lage of Berlin, and about three miles 
north of the now village of Salisbarv, 
on the farm, afterwards owned and 
occupied by John Buechly Sen ; for 
quite a number of years, and more 
recently by his sod, David Buechley, 
now living- in Marshall county, Iowa 
Brother Keagey opened said farm. 
There were at his arrival, into this 
then wild country, a few brethren 
scattered over this section of country, 
among whom was brother John 
Burger. He lived on the farm 
afterwards occupied by brother Abra- 
ham Buechley, and more recently 
by B. K. Buechley, (son of Abra- 
ham Buechley). and at present oc 
cupied by br -ther Daniel Buechly. 
In the fall of this, year, 1783, some of 
the Eastern Brethren paid a visit to 
Bro. Keagey, and sought out the other 
members scattered over the valley, 
and held a love-feast, at the house of 
brother John Burger, organized the 
little band of brethren and sisters into 
a church, had brother Keagey promo- 
ted to the ministry, and another 
brother to a Deacon. This was the 
first love-feast ever held by the Breth- 
ren west of the Allegheny. The lit- 
tle church from henceforth commenced 
to flourish and spread out to a consid- 
erable extent. Peter Livengood, 
John Oli tiger, Michael Buechley, and 
Christian Hi chstetkr, all of them Am- 
ish men, had moved into this neigh- 
borhood prior to brother Keagey. 
They all four soon united with the 
Brethren. Livengood, Buechley, and 
Huchstetler were put to the ministry. 
The church now become quite formid- 
able, spread out southward into Ma- 
ryland and Yirginia,and north into Con- 



emaugh, so that one branch south was 
struck off as a separate branch, called 
the Sandy Creek branch, and finally 
the north end, Conemaugh was struck 
off. Brother Keagey was ordained 
an Elder about the year It 90, and 
in the fall of 1806 he emigrated to the 
Miami Valley, near Dayton Ohio. 
Brother Michael Meyer, an interest- 
ing young brother, who had in his 
early years emigrated from Lebanon 
county, Pa. was now ordained, (180(5) 
the second Elder in this valley. He 
was the overseer of this large b-'dy 
of Brethren for 30 years. He died in 
the spring of 1836. The church 
spread out and increased to a very 
large extent under brother Meyer's 
oversight. In the fall of 1836, Peter 
Cover and John Forney were ordain- 
ed. In 1847, brother John Forney 
died. Jacob Meyer, son of Eider M. 
Meyer, dec'd was then ordained, and 
in 1849, this great body of brethren 
were divided into six different branch- 
es, namely, the Berlin, Quemahoning, 
MiddleCreekElkliek,BearCreekCove, 
Shade Mills, the latter two in Allegha- 
dv county, Md. Brethren Peter Cover 
and Jacob Meyer were the Elders of 
the Berlin branch, and had the over- 
sight of the Quemahoning and Middle 
Creek branches. Brethren John Berk- 
ley and Jacob Lichty were the Elders 
of the E r klick branch, and had the 
oversight of the two Maryland 
branches. In a few years after the 
separation as above stated, brother 
JacobS Hanger was ordained an 
Eider of the Middle Creek branch, 
and brother Christiau Smucker of the 
Quemahoning. 

From this little band of brethren 
and sisters, organized into a church 
in the fall of 1783, in the house of 
brother John Burger, came all the 
churches of the brethren in western 
Peon'a , western Maryland, (west of 
Cumberland) and those in Virginia, 
bordering on the Perm 'a. line, Preston 
county, and vicinity. The farm then 
occupied by brother John Burger, 
and afterwards by the Buechlys, is 
now that part of Dale City lying 



19 



south of Flaugherty Creek, and the 
brother John dinger, mentioned 
above, owned all that part of Dale 
City, and Mayers' Mills, lying north 
of Flaugherty Creek suburbs, rail 
road depot. &c. all formerly belong- 
ed to said John dinger The Myers 
Mills part was sold off many year* 
ago. 

The great Valley between the Al- 
leghany and Negro Mountains obtain- 
ed the name of Brother's Valley, from 
the fact that the Brethren first settled 
it. One township still bears that 
name. E. K. Buechley. 



"Don't Be too Certain." 

BY D. B. MENTZER. 

Ay, now, boys don't be to certain. 
It is a very easy thing to make a 
mistake. Remember nothing is eas- 
ier. And if you permit yourselves to 
make the same mistake a great many 
times, everybody will lose confidence 
in what you say, or in what you do. 
They will feel no security in trusting 
your word or your work. If we are 
liable to mistakes, why surely we 
need not always remain the same, 
and so have the misfortune to go 
through this world blundering, stag- 
gering, mistaking, misdoing, and at 
last look back on a miserable misspent 
life. No, no. We are susceptible of 
learning, improving, correcting our 
manner of life. We should improve 
every day. That's our business in 
this world. We should, necessarily, 
become better and better, and even if 
we cannot go out among our fallen 
brothers and sisters of humanity, and 
engage heartily and actively in a re- 
formatory work among them to lead 
them to virtue and righteousness, 
why ! we can 'let our light shine" 
at home and when we go abroad, as 
good children, nice young men and 
ladies, growing up into a true man- 
hood and virtuous womanhood. 
Would not such a life be beautiful and 
honorable ? Well, then, let us all try 
to walk in such a life. 

But sometimes we do what is 



1 wrong, and still we think it is right. 
Now, don't be too certain. Never 
make a positive statement, unless 
you know it is just as you say. If 
you have any doubts remove them 
by examination, before you speak 
confidently. Don't be too certain. 
Here is a home example to illustrate. 
"John, where is the ax ?" 
"It is in the corn-house " 
"No, it is not there, I have just 
been looking there." 

"Well, ! know it ix there; I s f iw 
it there not half an hour ago." 

"if you saw it there, it must be 
there of course. 

But suppose, John, you go and fetch 
it." 

John goes to the corn-house, and 
presently returns with a large ham- 
mer in his hand, and says : 

"Oh, it was the hammer I saw. 
The handle was sticking out from a 
half-bushel measure. I thought it 
was the ax." 

"Well, don't be certain, another 
time." 

"Yes, father, but I did really think 

I saw it, or I should not have said so." 

"But you said positively that you 

did see it, and not that you thought 

you saw it." 

Now, my gentle readers, I venture 
that many of you have madejust such 
mistakes. But this is only one of a 
thousand similar mistakes. Don't be 
too certain. There is a great differ- 
ence between the two answers — be- 
tween asserting a thing positively, 
and in simply thinking it so. Do not 
permit yourselves to make positive 
statements, even about small matters, 
unless you are quite sure, tor if you 
do, it will become one of your "bun- 
dle of habits," and the habit will grow 
upon you, and by and by yon will 
make loose replies to questions of 
great importance. Then your "good 
name" will be at stake. Be careful 
of this, because "a good name is rath- 
er to be chosen than great riches." 
Great riches! Just think! How care- 
ful we ought to be that we watch our 
words,and in what we have to say or 



20 



answer, always tell it right — do every- 
thing right. 

Don't be too certain. So we say 
to some Christians, who profess the 
religion of Jesus, but take their own 
way to follow Him, as they think. 
Christians are so divided in faith and 
practice, that anyone and everybody 
ought to be careful of what they do in 
this great matter. There is a right way 
and surely all my intelligent, think- 
ing readers, will admit. Here is one 
who says, "I believe so and so ;" but 
does not obey the commands of our 
Savior, and insists that he is right. 
Friend, don't be too certain — the han- 
dle is deceiving you. There are thous- 
ands more in the same error, holding 
similar views. Friends, don't be too 
certain. But I am certain that Jesus 
said, "Follow me," and ("search the 
Scriptures") so we must repent, quit 
sinning, be "buried with Christ in 
baptism/' "walk in newness of life," 
by faith, prayer, hope, love, in meek- 
ness and humility, rejoicing in the 
Lord. May the year 1873 find you 
coming to Christ, or living nearer to 
Him, and walking in all his command- 
ments, that you may be saved.

A Curiosity. 

While at his house, on the second 
day of October, 18*72, brother Henry 
Hershberger, showed us a wooden 
spoon that was presented to him by 
his grandmother, a short time before 
her death, which occurred near thir- 
ty-six years ago. She was about 
ninety years of age when she died. 
In her early life she belonged to the 
Seventh Hay Baptists, at Ephrata, 
Lancaster county, Pa. At that time, 
she told him, it was customary for 
sisters to have their own spoons, all 
of which were wooden, which they 
would take with them, w r hen attend- 
ing Lovefeasts from home. It is very 
neat and light, and in as good order 
as when first made. For convenience 
we would prefer it to the old fashion- 
ed pewter spoons. The old sister's 
maiden name was Rebecca Miller, 
and she was a German. 



Preaching Instead of Dancing. 

The following story was related to me 
on a dismal, rainy day, while a kind 
brother was conveying me from one place 
of preaching to another. We were pass- 
ing over hills and stones, through wood* 
and mud, and I was fast getting melan- 
choly, thinking of my cozy home and its 
| dear occupants. The brother understood 
trie situation, and to while away time, 
and to interest me, he asked : 

"Did your grandfather, George Price 
ever tell you about his preaching at a 
tavern, on the Allegheny Mountain, one 
evening : ' ' 

Replying in the negative, he continued: 

"Well, in the year 1821, the yearly 
meeting was in the Glades, and on the 
way home, your grandfather, and a num- 
ber of other brethren, stopped at a tavern 
on the mountain, intending to lodge 
there. They were inform ed"by the Host 
that the house was promised for a dance 
that night, and he supposed they could 
not be made comfortable there on that 
account. The sun was fast desclining, 
and it was seven miles from the next 
tavern, where the accommodations were 
not expected to be as good, neither for 
man nor beast. They had traveled all day 
on horseback, and w r ere very tired, and 
showed no disposition to move on, when 
the landlord remarked, that his accom- 
modations were ample, if the music and 
dance would not disturb them. One of 
the old men remarked that neither the 
music nor dancing would keep him 
awake, if nothing of a more annoyrng 
kind should follow ; and so they all said. 
The host assured them that they 'could 
make themselves easy, as the company 
is not of the fighting kind, and I can give 
you a large room to yourselves, and com- 
fortable beds.' 

"So they alighted and took up their 
quarters. 

"After supper the landlord came to 
their room and stated that the leader of 
the dancing party desired to see them. 
He was invited up, and soon requested 
that a few of his friends might be per- 
mitted to enjoy their company. This was 
also acceded to. About the time the 
company had collected it was proposed 
among themselves to postpone the dance, 
and that these old men be invited to 
preach. It was agreed to, and preach 
and pray they did." 

But here the story ends. Of its facts 
I have no doubts. It interested me, and 
beguiled the weary hours away. It has 
often recurred to my mind, and has given 



21 



rise to the celery : What results follow- | 
that meeting? The seed then sown may | 
be now producing a bountiful return. Of 
eourse, eternity will reveal it all ; but I 
would much like to know more about it 
now. You are now associating with 
brethren who live very near that moun- 
tain, and some one might possibly know 
something about the matter. If not, it 
may at least interest them to read this 
reminiscence. Isaac Price.

Universalism. 

Brother Holsinger :--As you re- 
quest something very new, or very old, 
or very good, for the Almanac, I thought 
I would send you an article I read in an 
Almanac more than 40 years ago. I 
then thought it a pretty good, and if you 
wish, you can insert it. I will give it as 
near as I can remember. 

Minister 13. came to the little village 

of on a Saturday evening, and put 

up at the village hotel, to stay over Sun- 
day. After some introductory remarks 
he asked the landlord if there was any 
preaching in town the next day. The 
landlord replied there was Universalis 
meeting, and that there was no other 
denomination could start a church there ; 
that ministers of different persuasions had 
tiied but had always failed. 

"Well," said the minister "I will go 
and hear him, in the forenoon ; and if 
they will give me a chance. I will speak 
in the afternoon. 

The landlord replied, "you can no doubt, 
have the house ; it is free for any one.'' 

Sunday, II o'clock came, the minister 
was there, and heard a good Universalis 
sermon. They were much encouraged to 
enjoy the world, aud rejoice that there 
was such a merciful Saviour, that had 
died for the sins of the whole world, 
and that the idea of hell, being a place of 
torment was from a misunderstanding 
of the word hell ; that hell was nothing 
more or less than the grave ; for God 
was too merciful to punish his creatures, 
but had prepared a heaven for his intel- 
ligent creatures after death. 

W hen the meeting was dismissed, min- 
ister B. asked if he could have the house, 
at 3 o'clock in the afternoon- His re- 
quest was readily granted. 

Three o'clock came, and a hcuse full 
of hearers, to hear the stranger. The 
meeting was commenced with singing 
and prayer ; then read the Scripture of 
his choice which reads thus : ' 'And I say 
unto you, my friends, Be not afraid of 



them that kill the body, and after that 
have no more that the t y can do. But I 
will forewarn you whom you shall fear : 
Fear him which after he hath killed, hath 
power to cast into hell ; yea, I say unto 
you, Fear him. 

"Now" said the minister, as I believe 
I am addressing an intelligent congrega- 
tion, I shall make but few remarks, and 
then leave the subject for your serious 
consideration, until I return again, which 
I will do in 4 weeks, if the Lord will 
But to my subjuct, if a murderer comes 
into your house, or comes upon you any 
place. I say unto you, friends, you shall 
not he afraid of him, for he can only kill 
the body, and after that hath no more 
than he can do. But I will fore-warn 
you whom you shall fear: "Fear him, 
wdiich after you are killed, hath power 
to cast you into the grave, yes, fear the 
sexton, fear him that will cast both soul 
and body into hell, yea, fear the sexton, 
I say unto you fear him. The minister 
returned at the appointed time, held reg- 
ular meetings, and it is necessary to add, 
that he soon organized a church.

History of tlie Brethren Uxi ILan- 
caster County, P&. 

In H24, there was a division of the 
church, occassioned by the troubles 
with Conrad Beissel. Six brethren and 
five sisters joined with Bisel, and 
formed the Seventh Day Baptists, at 
Ephrata. Twenty-seven remained 
true to the Church, all of the Gonestoga 
congregation. Peter Becker was 
their Bishop, until 1734. Fifcy -two- 
persons were baptized during his min- 
istration. 

After ward* they elected Michael 
Frantz as minister, and John Landis 
Deacon. Michael Frantz preached 
until 1T4Y, when he moved to Mary- 
land. During his ministration in 
Conestoga one hundred and nine- 
teen persons were baptized. From 
1T4T to IT69, the congregation was 
in charge of Elder Michael Phoutz, 
and daring this time one hundred and 
sixteen persons were baptized into 
the faith. Michael Frantz died in the 
6 ! >th year of his age in Connestoga. 
He was succeeded by Elder Christ- 
tian Lanecker, for a period of three 
years, until M12, when the congrega- 



22 



lion was divided into three branches, | 
viz: Counestoga, White Oak, and I 
Swatara. Elder Peter Eigenberger, 
and Jacob Stall belonged to Cones- 
toga; Eider Christian Lanecker, and. 
JohannasZug to the White Oak; and 
Elder Hano, Jacob Beshore, and 
George Kline, to the Swatava. 

Elder Jacob Stall succeeded Eigen- 
berger, for fifty years, until 1822, 
during which, time two hundred and 
seventy-three persons were baptized. 
Stall died in 1822.

Wisscloui «i Love Making 

We know that men naturally shrink 
from the attempt to obtain companions 
who are their superiors, but they will 
find that really intelligent women, who 
possess the most desirable qualities, are 
uniformly modest, and hold their charms 
in modest estimation. Don't imagine 
that any disappointment of love which 
takes place before you are twenty-one 
years old will be of any material damage 
to you. The truth is, that before a man 
is twenty-five years old he does not know 
what he wants himself. The more of a 
man you become, and the more maniless 
.you become capable of exhibiting in your 
associations with women, the better wife 
you will be able to obtain ; and one year's 
possession of the heart and hand of a re- 
ally noble woman is worth nine hundred 
and ninety -nine years' possession of a 
sweet creature with two ideas in her head, 
and nothing new to say about either of 
them. 

An Apt Quotation. — A lady, writing 
to her father, described the loss of a fa- 
vorite cow as follows : 

' 'Yesterday poor Doily strayed from 
the pasture, and unfortunately selecting 
the railroad track for the route of her 
luckless liberty, was caught by the late 
afternoon train from the north, and left 
in nearly equal portions on either side 
the track:" 

To which the father promptly and suc- 
cinctly replied : 

" Appropos of vour co.v, see Genesis, 
xv. 17.' v " 

Consulting Genesis according to this 
direction, she read: "And it came to 
pass, that, -when the sun went down, and 
it was dark, behold a smoking furnace 
and a liurnintf lump that passed between 
those piece*." — Editor's Drawer, in 
Harpers Magazine for' April. 



Finding the Stoleaa Ax 3. 

While Mr- -Dow was traveling through 
Maryland, a poor man came and inform- 
ed him that some one had stolen his axe, 
and wished Mr. Dow to be good enough 
to tell him where it was. Lorenzo in- 
formed him that he possessed no power 
of knowing such things. But the man 
had heard that Lorenzo Dow knew every- 
thing, and could not be persuaded to be- 
lieve anvthing else. At length, when it 
was evident that the man could not be 
otherwise disposed of, Mr. Dow said he 
would find the axe, if he could. 

"But do you suspect any person of 
stealing it?" said Mr. Dow. 

"Yes," said the man. very promptly, 
"I think I know the very man, but can- 
not be certain." 

"Will he be at meeting?" 

"Yes, sir, he is sure to be there." 

Mr. Dow said no more, but picking up 
a stone about as large as his two fists, 
carried it to church wiih him, and laid it 
on the desk beside him, so that all the 
congregation might see it. How many 
inquiries ran through their minds about 
the stone, during the sermon, no one 
knows. But, after he had finished 
preaching, he took the stone in his hand, 
and, addressing the audience, said : 

"Some one has stolen an axe belonging 
to Mr. A., a p or man. The thief is 
here. Efe is before me now, and I in- 
tend, after turning round three times, to 
hit him on the head with this stone. 

Accordingly, he turned round twice, 
rather slowly , but the third time came 
round with sreat fury, as if going to 
throw the stone into the midst of the men 
before him, when, to the no little amuse- 
ment of the company, and the satisfac- 
tion of the man who lost the axe, the 
very man who was suspected of the theft 
dodged his head behind the pew. 

"Now," said Dow, "I will not expose 
you any further, but if you don't leave 
that axe to-night where you got it, I will 
publish you to-morrow." 

The axe was, accordingly, returned. 

A merchant of veracity in Cincinnati 
vouches for the truth of this story. 



A brave man thinks no one his su- 
perior who does him an injury ; for 
he has it then in his power to make 
himself superior to the other by for- 
giving it. — Pope.

hate all that is wrong.

4 Happy Xew Year. 

We desire that the year 1873 shall be 
a happy and joyous year to all our nu- 
merous readers. And as we are the ar- 
tificers of our own fortune, and as our 
highest enjoyments gyring from our most 
noble acts, let us consider well the paths 
we tiead, strive to elevate our spiritual 
natures, cultivate our mental and practi- 
cal powers — and press forward in the 
light with a clear consciousness, regard- 
less of the eyes of scoffers, and we shall 
gain the prize : Happiness ! 

The First Tbingv 

The first thing you are required to do 
this year is to subscribe for the Christ- 
ian Family Companion. You will find 
it instructive and useful to soul and body. 
It will only cost a dollar and a half, and 
it will last you a whole year. When you 
read it a while you will wonder how you 
got along without it at all. Address the 
publisher, H. R. Holsinger, Dale city, 
Somerset Co., Pa , 

Good words are like dew drops, they 
fall .silently ; but who can tell their good 
effect?

i 




N > Implement more important to tbe far. 
mer than a FIRST CLASS GRAIN THRESH- 
ER and CLEANER— for none pay him e o 
well and speedily. 

The above cut shows the ONLY GEISER 
MACHINE now built under the immediate ey 
of the old inventors themselves, with all tre 
additional improvements made duting thi 
past 18 years, and now with fi st-elaas wotk- 
m°n and material this machine justly s'amK 
high ab^ve all of its class. As a Thresher 
it is equal o the best, as a Cleaner it is su- 
perior to any exis mg machine. This is ad- 
mited by all honest comietitors- Indeed it 
is the only machine that really can by one 
operation, thoroughly thresh and clean 
grain fit for market. But the fact lhat gra'n 
direct from this machine comands from two 
to three cents a bushel more than grain di- 
rect fiom any other machine, settles th s 
question of supiiiority, as a cleaner over 
I a 1 otters. Impartial judges at al. the State 
J and County Fairs where it was thoroughly 
I and practically tested, in competition with 
j other leading, machines, always agree thao 
! it is more simple -moie easily understood 
j and operated by those unskilled iu machine 
I ery -more durable — threshing as much and 
j yet cleaning betttr — with less power and 
j more comfort to hands than any other ma- 
i chine in use — besides all th» t, is sold for 
! less money accoiding to capacity. These 
! facts are fartht r attested by the thousands 
of purchasers, some of whom have had them 
in use for the last 18 years. To supply the 
wants of all, we now make fou»* sizes, viz : 
From a Two-Horse Railway or Threi -Horse 
Lever power, to a Ten-Horse Lever Power, 
j with prices ranging from $190 to $3ti0, with- 
out power. We also make the latest im- 
| pioved triple-geared Horse Powers, suitable 
i for each si/e machine ranging from $90 to
